Two Dead, One Critical
A cargo plane from El
Paso (TX) skidded off the runway at Del Rio (TX) Friday night. The
aircraft exploded, killing two crewmembers.
"He ran off the end of the runway, and then the airplane
exploded," Federal Aviation Administration spokesman John Clabes
said in today's editions of the San Antonio Express-News.
Clabes said the aircraft was a Lear-25 configured for cargo.
In December of 2001, another Lear jet crash out of El Paso
killed two people. That crash was north of Fort Hancock
(TX). The Lear belonged to Air Cargo Express, a small
air-freight company in Fort Wayne (IN) that transports factory
products from Mexico across the border.
